Fishy business

'Huh,' I thought to myself the other evening.

'Why would someone just dump a load of paint onto the pavement?'

Something about the movement of colour through the splodge made me stop for a closer inspection.

I had a sense that I was looking at the shape of paint from the wrong way up, and so I walked around it to the other side.

Sure enough, a fabulous fish emerged!

I really think this is a great painting. I love the messy trails of paint and the random splashes – I'd like to get more of this kind of energy happening in my own work.

Amazing magic you can find when you keep your eyes open.
